HI, this is the message of error that I'm getting Make sure you're adding one space (' ') between `firstName`

let msg = firstName + lastName + role; and this is my code, can someone help me figure it out what I'm doing wrong

app.js
let firstName = 'Raissa';
let lastName = 'Gomes';
let role = 'developer';
let msg = `firstName` + `lastName` + `role`;

As the error says, you need to add a space between the names. But even more important is that variable names should not be enclosed in quotes. Extra characters you add (like the space) will have quotes.

Since you are using Template literals, then you should add --> ${ } to perform substitutions

let firstName = 'Raissa';
let lastName = 'Gomes';
let role = 'developer';
let msg = `${firstName} ${lastName}: ${role}`;
